Princess Peach female

2018-02-11

Adopted!

CongRATs to the Elrod-Erle family!

Location: Florida

Seniors for Seniors Candidate
Peach is a lucky lil princess - a Hurricane Irma survivor. She is very sweet, and has adjusted quickly to her foster home. Peach came in with Mario, and they pal around together. She takes her time getting used to new doggie friends, and shies away from hyper dogs. Peach LOVES to go for walks. She is a very beautiful Rat Terrier and very attentive, especially when a T-R-E-A-T is involved. Peach had flea and/or food allergies when she was originally rescued, but her coat is much healthier now. We believe Peach to be around 7 years old, possibly older.

Gumby male

2017-05-14

Adopted!

CongRATs to the Benes family!

Location: Florida

Seniors for Seniors Candidate
Gumby Ratbone is a SPECIAL boy! We were alerted to his plight when a video of him trembling in a cage at a high kill shelter in South Florida was posted. The shelter said his medical was normal - they did not list anything about his rotten and broken teeth. Poor Gumby had MAJOR periodontal disease, and many of his teeth were already missing. He had to have TEN teeth removed, but he pulled thru like nothing happened. Gumby is a very affectionate boy. He is fine with cats and dogs of small to medium size. He isn't happy around larger dogs, and will growl at them - but he responds quickly when he is asked to behave. Gumby is crate trained and enjoys snuggling in bed with his fostermom and some of the other critters. He is GREAT on a leash, and loves to just chill out and watch DVDs and TV shows. Any applicants should understand and accept that Gumby should have regular check ups, and may very likely need yearly dental cleanings, to take care of the remaining teeth that he has. Gumby is about 7 years old and weighs 15 pounds. He loves lamb & rice dry food and he likes "stew"type canned food. Gumby is ready for a great home, one who will adore him and really take care of this special boy. More pictures of Gumby Ratbone can be found here in his album.

Max male

2017-08-12

Location: Florida

Seniors for Seniors Candidate
Seniors need love too! Max was surrendered by his family to a high kill shelter - at the age of 12 years! He came to us with an old injury to his back leg - which can't be fixed now, due to his age - and horrible dental disease. Max has had a complete dental cleaning, and he is now ready and eager for his retirement home. Max is dog friendly, and is a happy boy. He LOVES to play fetch with tennis balls, even though he doesn't have many teeth left.Would you consider sharing your love with this happy, active fellow for the rest of his life?

Sugar Mama female

2017-08-12

Location: Florida

Seniors for Seniors Candidate
This is Sugar Mama, an 8 to 10 year old purebred Rat Terrier. Sugar Mama came from a hoarding situation. In the pictures shown on her intake shelter listing, her sad and shut-down eyes broke our hearts. When we picked her up from the volunteer transport, and we saw how INCREDIBLY SWEET she is, we were instantly under her spell. Though it may be true that older, obese dogs aren't as "adoptable" as young small ones, there certainly hasn't been anyone sweeter than this fine lady. She will literally knock her human adult foster family members over to give them kisses when they bend down to love on her. Sugar, Sugs, Sugar Lumps. Sugar Mama is very dog friendly, and loves kitties. She currently weighs about 30 pounds, but is on a diet & exersize program to help her get healthy and fit. Sugar CAN be shy with new people, but once they get close to her they'd better PREPARE TO GET KISSES!!! This girl is a GEM!

Lily female

2017-06-11

Location: Florida

Seniors for Seniors Candidate
Lovely Lily has a heart of pure gold. This beautiful little girl was adopted from Ratbone Rescues in 2010. She was returned to us last year because her owner fell ill and could no longer take care of her. Lily had cataracts in both eyes, but once she learned her way around she did very well. In October of 2017, one of Lily's eyes became very large and painful. We took her immediately to an Eye Specialist. Because of severe glaucoma in the one eye and the beginning of the same in the other eye, it was recommended to remove both of her eyes. She handled the surgery very well - and gets along just like she did before because her vision was terribly impaired before, plus now she has no pain. Lily walks well on a harness, but she steps uncertainly in new surroundings, which is understandable. Often times her fostermom carries her out to the yard to go potty and she enjoys sniffing the fresh breeze before they come back inside. Lily is a very sweet senior; even though her vision is impaired she is still a genuine sweetie. She is very cuddly and craves human interaction. Lily does fine with dogs and cats, but would do best with calm, respectful dogs. She is believed to be around 9 years old, and weighs about 8 to 10 pounds. Lily jumps up straight in the air when it is time for breakfast & dinner. To see more pictures of Lily please click here for her album.
